Poland’s CF98 is a band that brings melodic punk rock energy, PMA, and friendship wherever it goes. Formed over 15 years ago, the band remains faithful to its skatepunk roots.
The 4-piece fronted by the powerhouse vocals of singer Karolina Duszkiewicz creates fast, melodious, mostly positive songs with great energy and message about “loving life” that will make you reconsider some serious social topics or will put a smile on your face.
CF98’s upbeat new single “Double Sunrise” (off the band’s upcoming album ‘This Is Fine,’ out September 2 via SBÄM Records / Sound Speed Records) celebrates the DIY touring life and vividly recalls unforgettable moments while out on the road.
Duszkiewicz says, “We chose that song as our first single because it brings back memories, brings back touring, festivals, meetings with friends, great adventures. We always associated those things with summer, mostly good, positive and memorable things happen in that season.”
